Headphones for classical music

Hello Gearslutz

I am looking for a new pair of headphones. which mainly is gonna be used for classical music, but also rock and electric music.

Right now i am using a pair of Ultrasone HFI-780, but i want something better something that have better ear cups and better sound quality.

I have a budget of 400 - 550$

Any ideas? ask if you need for info ^^

If you like the hyped bass of the Ultrasone pro 900 then go with them.
I have a pair and they're perfect for electronic music/hip-hop/rock, but I think for classic music there're much better cans out there. Maybe some Sennheiser HD-650 or AKG 702.

I would try a few before purchasing them.Iit's always a question of your personal taste when it comes toheadphones, the same counts for monitors as well.
Personally I would start trying out with the above mentioned AKG and Sennheiser models
